We have been huge fans of Eventide for many many years.
They are currently celebrating 50 years of incredible products for audio and music production and there isn’t any sign of them letting up.
They gave us the chance to check out their latest version of Physion (Physion Mk 2). It takes their trademarked Structural Split technology revered in their groundbreaking SplitEQ plugin and applies it to an effects unit.
Yes! By splitting the signal, you can apply different effects to either the transient or the tonal component of the signal. It’s really cool.
And as ever, we’re grateful to the incredible Mr Matt Lange for sharing not only his take on this creative plugin but Matt was invited by Eventide to create presets – and there are A LOT.
So enjoy! Enjoy today’s video and be inspired
The good folks at Eventide have also given you the opportunity to win 1 of 3 Physion Mk 2 plugins! Enter to win below!
About Physion Mk 2
Eventide has released Physion Mk II, an advanced multi-effects plug-in that offers a modern approach to mixing and sound design. Physion Mk II utilizes Eventide’spatented Structural Split™ technology, allowing the user to split a sound into its transient and tonal parts, independently manipulate the components with world-class Eventide effects, and fuse them back together.This revolutionary approach to both practical and dramatic multi-effect processing delivers smarter production solutions along with a host of new sonic options to enhance and inspire creativity.
Building on its 50-year legacy of groundbreaking audio effects, Eventide painstakingly hand-tuned each Physion Mk II effect for transient or tonal material and included new effects like Polyphonic Pitch Shifting based on Eventide’s new SIFT technology. It also features new Reverse delay with Gating, Ping-pong, and crystal modes, as well as sidechain inputs for dynamics effects. The seven transient effects available are Delay, Tap Delay, Dynamics, Phaser, Reverb, Gate + EQ and Reverse Delay. Eight tonal effects can be applied to a source: Delay, Dynamics, Pitch, Chorus, Reverb, Tremolo, EQ and ReverseDelay. The transient/tonal split of a sound can be fine-tuned with four Physion Mk II Structural Splitcontrols.“Physion Mk II changes the way I think about effects. Tonal processing is a groundbreaking way to manipulate audio, and this is the key to effects that simply weren’t possible before.”—Paul“Willie Green” Womack (Wiz Khalifa, The Alchemist, The Roots)
Physion Mk II’s factory library comes loaded with over 500 presets, offering unique and exclusive sounds, organized into easy-to-navigate categories. Whether an engineer or artist is looking for a little color, a quick fix, some extra spaciousness, or a deep transformation, they can quickly find a broad range of options. Structural Split techniques also allow soloed or rebalanced tonal and transient channel effects like tightening up drums by dropping the tonal section or turning a guitar into an ambient sweep by muting the transients. A/B Comparison and Undo/Redo features allow easy exploration of sounds without losing track of the original source
